Cultural events for older people

Out and About offers complimentary tickets to Westminster residents aged 65 or above, to attend cultural events such as concerts.

We are delighted to announce that the Out and About ticket scheme will resume in January 2024. Scroll down to find out how to become a member and receive updates on Out and About ticket scheme 2024.

Out and About offers complimentary tickets to Westminster residents aged 65 or above, to attend cultural events such as concerts, exhibitions, film and theatre shows. You need to become a member of the scheme to receive tickets.

Previous offers have included tickets to the Turner Prize Exhibition at Tate Britain, Eaton Square Concerts, Young Classical Artists Trust concerts at Wigmore Hall and English National Opera dress rehearsals.

How the scheme works

Out and About runs for a season every year. Once you are a member, you will automatically receive the programme of ticket offers by email, or by post if you do not have an email address

The scheme is based entirely on voluntary donations from our partner organisations and therefore the choice of seating and the number of tickets are limited.

Become a member

To become a member, contact the Cultural Partnerships team by emailing: [email protected] with your name, age, postal address, telephone number and email address.

If you use a wheelchair or any walking aid, please tell us so that we may inform each venue. Staff are happy to make any arrangements necessary. 

Seating at ENO dress rehearsals is restricted to an area which is high and steep. These tickets are not suitable for anyone suffering from dizziness or vertigo.

Request tickets

At the start of season members will receive a full programme of events. Once received, you can start applying for tickets by contacting the Cultural Partnerships team by email at [email protected]

Out and About offers a maximum of two tickets per household for each performance. Guests should also be residents aged 65 and over unless you require a carer.

If you would like two tickets, submit the name of your guest or carer when you apply.

You will only receive confirmation if you are allocated tickets. Please do not repeat your request for tickets unless you must cancel or change your options.

All tickets should be collected at the venue, 30 minutes before the performance starts.
